Have tried it too now.
It fails during opc with 5/2C/00 which is "COMMAND SEQUENCE ERROR".
If I comment out the opc stuff in the source it fails when starting to
write with 3/72/01 "SESSION FIXATION ERROR WRITING LEAD-IN".
This is odd... If you perform multiple dummy recordings against same
disc, does it fail on same LBA or does LBA vary?
It does vary with the same disk. That is why I feel like It's some kind
of buffer underflow. And like I said 4x recordings die a lot faster.
growisofs engages buffer-underrun unconditionally, leaving *no* option
for switching it off.
Is it possible that my drive sends some unusual error message that
should be ignored or handled some way while recording? This recorder is
rather new, the other recording tools don't even start recording with it
- they don't know how to handle it.
It seems to me that this is not an unrecoverable error, as the message
says, so I feel like recording software modification might help.
It's most likely media problem. I'd insist on trying another media
brand before you proceed. A.
These are Ritek 4x DVD-R disks (with ritek printing, not ridata or
arita). One of my friends could use these successfully for many
recordings, thats why I thought they should work. My friend has an LG
4081 writer. Also, the plextor media compatibility page said that there
are supported Ritek 4x DVD-R disks, but I'm not sure that this is the
type they tested.
I'll try some other DVD-Rs too, but currently I don't have any.
Since then I also tryed DVD+R disks and they work well, I also have
rewriteable disks of both + and - kind and can use them too.
Thanks for your help.
